  • "The property is a barn conversion which which has been very cleverly done."

    Although the basic footprint of the property is small, the interior is deceptively spacious with plenty of room due to the very clever use of space. It is exceptionally well appointed with a very high level of cleanliness and wonderfully cosy on an evening. Although on a working farm we had a very peaceful, quiet week. Local people are very friendly and the big Northumberland skies are breathtaking on a clear night. A superb getaway.

    Cosy and clean and our little dog was immediately at home too. The owners are very nice and we can see why the cottage is booked up most of the time. Close to Berwick, Bamber and Seahouses days out were great and the beaches wonderful. I would ask that a pay phone or WiFi be considered in the future, as no signal in the cottage. Sometimes families need to contact in emergencies. Next time I will take my hairdryer ! But overall excellent, excellent, excellent!!!

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our time at The Bothy, as did our Pointer, Richie."

    It was vitally important to be able to find somewhere he was as welcome as us. Once we'd got over the "separation anxiety" of not having internet access we enjoyed the freedom of not being bothered by it. The lack of a decent mobile signal is perhaps more of a handicap and although this is probably beyond the owners' control perhaps it should be pointed out to potential occupants. The property is well described and very well equipped and the "welcome cake" on arrival was an unexpected but very well received surprise! The are abounds with walks, beaches and history and there's no reason for anyone to lack entertainment in some form. We loved the area, having little knowledge of it, and we'll definitely be back!
